Late test for Harding
Ben Harding remains a doubt for Northampton ahead of their trip to npower League Two basement club Hereford.
Harding has missed the last two matches with an Achilles tendon problem and the midfielder is rated at 50/50 for the weekend, so a late decision will be made on his fitness. On-loan Liverpool midfielder Toni Brito Silva returned from compassionate leave as a substitute during the 3-1 defeat at promotion chasing Crawley on Tuesday night. He will be pushing for a start, with defenders Byron Webster and Anthony Charles and attackers Lewis Young, Lewis Wilson and Brett Williams also hoping to be recalled by boss Aidy Boothroyd. Victory will guarantee Northampton's Football League status, while a draw will be good enough if Macclesfield fail to beat Bradford at Valley Parade.
